National Association of Prosecutor Coordinators Endorses DWI Courts
The National Association of Prosecutor Coordinators (NAPC) is the latest national organization to officially endorse DWI Courts. NAPC is the nation’s only national organization of prosecutor coordinators and promotes the exchange of ideas and information and the development of programs and services for the mutual benefit of prosecutor coordinators and prosecutors.
In endorsing DWI Courts, NAPC released a resolution which strongly supports the establishment of DWI Courts for hardcore DWI offenders.
“Prosecutors have always been committed to removing the impaired driver from the nation’s roadways and we now know that DWI Courts are one of the most effective tools we have to meet this goal,” said NAPC President Rob Kepple. “Hardcore drunk drivers are not impacted by the same general deterrence methods as most impaired drivers. DWI Courts ensure accountability for these individuals while providing the structure, supervision and treatment to permanently change their behavior. We are honored to work with the National Center for DWI Courts on the important work of expanding the reach of these courts”
